, while horrific and have caused horrific injury, what we're hearing from law enforcement sources are that they were not terribly sophisticated. they were small. it would have been much worse if it was a higher explosive like c-4 or plastic explosive so you just can't really tell yet. we don't know enough about the forensics to know was this a domestic terrorist group. it's possible, right. we've seen things like oklahoma city, that tragedy. so it could be a domestic group. law enforcement has been careful to say that's the question they can't answer tonight, domestic or foreign. >> very important to do that because so many rumors are swirling around. we live in an era of twitter, facebook, a rumor goes round the world in a few seconds and can be very damaging. is that why the president, you think, was quite circumspect in the use of language, didn't mention terrorism at all, in fact. >> that's obviously right. they want to be absolutely sure what they're dealing with before getting ahead of it. what can be said looking at past plots is al qaeda as a group has encouraged the use o

? maybe they want to hold back their information. what's going on behind the scenes with law enforcement? >> i think there may be some late-breaking developments in terms of if they have a specific suspect, which it sounded like they did earlier. perhaps they weren't ready to make a move or statement on it. we don't know if there is one or two persons involved in this. they have received 2,000 images that they are currently analyzing from the public based on the public plea they made yesterday. there is a lot of rich forensic information to go through. you had all those people out there crime scene investigators capturing things supposed to be moments from family members that turned into this tragedy. the fact that they were able to recover so much of this bomb as well is going to be very helpful. they will be able to identify through specific markers exactly where every piece of that bomb came from. just by doing that they are able to narrow in on suspect or suspects. they can also use the footage that was seen of the individual, match that together i wouldn't be surprised if we heard s
